Letting guests see forums but not read in them?

Post by Been Told »

Hi :)
I've just installed phpbb3 for the first time (I used to use phpBB2 a while ago) and here is what I want to do:

Guests see the forums I have, but when they click a forum name to get in, they see a message asking them to log in.

Is that possible?
